Jeans with ‘bum rips’ now exist and we have a lot of feelings


Oh wow.

Look, distressed jeans have been all the rage for a while now.

Take a glance in your own wardrobe, your mate’s wardrobe, and your pushing-100 granny’s wardrobe and you’ll more than likely pull out of a pair of distressed black skinnies with the knees ripped out and a seam or two looking a bit worse for wear.

This isn’t normal wear-and-tear however – this is fashion, and we’ve come to know and love it.

That being said, there comes a time when the distressed jean becomes distressed in ways that we never thought possible.

… Most notably distressed on the bum cheeks in the form of ‘bum rips.’

This is them.

Yeah. We don’t really know if we could pull these beauties off either, but we’re sure someone (somewhere) would be able to, maybe.

The ‘Black Distressed Bum Rip High Waisted Skinny Jean’, as they are known, are currently being sold by PrettyLittleThing for the not-so-bank-breaking price of just €35.

They come in two colours – black and light blue – and are described in the following manner:

“Flaunt some skin with these seriously on point skinny jeans.

“Featuring a black denim fabric with a flattering high waisted fit and distressed bum detail, style with your everyday pieces or dress them up for hitting the town with your besties.”

Can you just imagine yourself and all your mates hitting up Coppers dressed in matching bum rip jeans, like?

No? Us neither.

Still though, you know the second a Top Irish Influencer dons a pair, everyone and your mam’ll be wearing them.

Get ready.

The bum rips are coming.
